How to modify confluence page without recieving a confluence email notification?

Dear Sir,
I'm using confluence on my company and really I'm struggling to find the help or an answer to one of my questions. I'm trying to update some data and some results on the confluence, but I don't want the rest of the people on the confluence to see it till its finished. So, how can I do that? How can I modify the confluence page in the way that the others will not receive a confluence email notification?
kind regards,
Ashraf

Hi Ashraf,

I'm afraid that you will have to disable notifications for you to ahceive that, otherwise i will fire notification each time that you make changes to it. Disabling notification is done in your profile page and is not global like JIRA

Hope this answers your question

Hi Ashraf,

does the information on the following page help you: http://www.k15t.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=66224644

Hi Nils,

Thanks for the information, but I'm afraid that the Custom HTML is not available in the version I'm using or I can't find it in Look and Feel.

cheers,

Ashraf,

A quick solution is to change the page permissions so that only you can see/edit it. If you do that no one will be sent any updates (or be able to see the page itself) until you remove the viewing permissions.

Once you've finished working on it, you can remove the permissions.

You could also create and edit the page in your own space (assuming that is set so that only you can view/edit it) and then move the page to where you want it when you've finished.

In Google Chrome you can add a macro that de-selects the Notify Watchers tick box. If you do that, then no one will see any updates unless you deliberately select that tick box.

Cheers.

Hi Nick,

to change the permissions you mean watch or restriction viewing?

thanks.

Hi Ashraf,

another possible solution would be to use Scroll Versions, create a version for the content you work in and publish it as soon as it's finished (and therefore make it visible to the other users).

Cheers,
Nils
